a little bit of a gamble, if you will, and go on the technology -- technological information we have as to where our crime was most occurring. we put the cops there and we've been fortunate to be able to keep the fatal gun and homicide countdown. ~ count down. so, with that -- >> chief, if i may, some of the statistics you just described are incredibly important to sucres for the public because i think a lot of times members of the public, they wonder why there aren't more patrol officers, why there's not more traffic enforcement, et cetera. a lot of times people don't fully understand how problematic it wattx of so many years we didn't have police academy classes and we saw the department strained, about 300 short right now. ~ so, that's why it was so positive that the mayor put three academy classes per year in the budget last year and made a commitment, i know, i believe and hope that the board has the same commitment to consistently fund three academy classes per year. because even with turning it around like we're trying to do, it's goingic to like another five years for the dep
-year communication and technology plan for fiscal year 2013-2014 through fiscal year 2017-18 pursuant to administrative code section 22a.6. >> president chiu. >> thank you, mr. chair. again, i want to thank the members of the budget committee for the consideration and support of the five-year information and communication technology plan which i had several years ago in legislation asked that our city's i-t staff put together so that we can have a framework about how we plan invest in technology. and i do support the plan as it's laid out. one thing i would just notice, though, for colleagues is that over the next five years we have about $200 million of capital needs that we have within our ict areas and i think it's important for us to think about that, to think about how we can make government more efficient and effective through the use of technology, and to do this in a way that really increases public access and transparency. but all that being said, colleagues, i hope that you will be able to support this plan and i want to haltake a moment to thank the members of coyt and i-t
numbers of calls, general day to day and how we're meeting those cole. calls. and i think as technology changes, responsiveness probably is improved and even just with major housing improvements like sprinklers in the s-r-os and other major improvements, it might reduce the number of calls to certain areas of town. ~ i know some stations like 34 and the outer richmond have a specific focus and are always needed for different needs around the ocean beach area. but just knowing some of that data would be helpful in understanding your budget. but i'm wondering will we get that information as the budget goes forward? >> certainly. and we'll have some of that information for you next week in terms of call volume, area of concentration, and then the guidelines by which we're mandated to provide responses both from the fire suppression side and the emergency medical response. >> thank you. >> we can have that for you next week and we'll follow-up with your office if there is anything specifically you'd like to see. >> thank you, chief. much appreciated. >> thank you. >> and at this point we'll
looked at zones and with new technology we can where a taxi is and license it to be in certain places. none of the neighborhoods outside the corridor are being serviced. we expect to lay the foundation for using modern technology so i knowed have options. and then my second question is back to the directors question is the increase of the madalinas. and this is on the budget impact of shifting the pricing of the madalinas. i was looking through my comprehensive budget and what will be the impact to the raw budget? >> up until this point we haven't, you know, decided how many of the madalinas would be when we set a price we didn't know maybe every 10 we use the impact would be this. the math is if we were to secure authorization to get 1 hundred would be times 3 hundred thousand or so. that's the budget impact our if you recall when we were developing the two year budget we're conservative we didn't know where this process was going to go. so the question is the recommendation from 2 to 3 hundred would it yeast a revenue problem? no, i think we have a low enough 0 number we won't crea
people off. your technology coordinator lost his job and that might not be legal >> good morning. i'm a student at city college. i want to voice my opinion on the accreditation related to city college. i wanted to give a little bit of my story are city college has given me a second chance out of high school i wasn't prepared to go straight into a four-year but the city college has provided that he with that. i'm on track. and i've bend so much and if we continue to put education, you know, aside, you know, a lot of people, you know, have the are smart and capable, you know, we're going to be i guess not giving them the opportunity to succeed. and some of the city colleges are producing some the leader and many of my peers are going on to higher institutions. so, please keep city college in mind >> good morning, mr. chairman. i'm not going to sing to you but it's a real pleasure to address i today. as it was said it was approved by over 70 percent of san franciscans. i'm talking to you as a instructor. i want you to use the parcel taxes to be used for that purpose. it says that the
in this community and we have amazing technology and we have amazing business leaders and we want to highlight that and we are going to over the next six weeks. but, i'm focused also in highlighting what is happening for those that are or the things that are not yet great, we have 1.3 million people who are too poor to meet their basic needs and so what we are going to do by bringing the greatest game to the greatest city and region, is we are going to make this good for the entire community, and that is why this is going to be the most philentropic super bowl bid and hopefully super bowl and the nfl and the nation has ever seen and with that i would like to turn it over to mayor lee. >> thank you. thank you. >> good morning. daniel, thank you, again for your wonderful leadership, up our bay area super bowl committee and thank you, again, i still remember the very first time that we talked about what it was and what the 9ers meant to us and i want to thank you and the whole 49ers franchise for continuing to work on this wonderful legacy that we have with the 9ers and supporting if not helping
of each project such as location, construction technology and a purpose. the tower is a marvelous expression of mr. pally's -- commitment. please welcome cesar pally. [ applause ] >> this is a very important day for me today. i have been dreaming about this tower and the center for over 6 years. now, this is all going to be reality. i hope not for long we'll all gather here to celebrate the opening of the tower and the center. i have always loved san francisco. it's an incredible city. it's dynamic at the same time, it's gentle, it's an incredible place. we have designed the tower appropriate for this city. the tower will be a dynamic, elegant and very gracious. it will be building appropriate tower for this great city. now that it seems to be the tallest tower, but west of the mississippi, what a marvelous marker for this place. when you see it as a distance, this tower, you will know that the center is at it's space. when you arrive in san francisco from los angeles or san diego, you will be in this tower. so it's a marvelous combination to have the gateway to the city and the t
the things because arts, oftentimes when you talk to the employees of all the technology companies that i have been talking with every week and ask them what draws their talent to a city, the first three things they know whether it's public transportation, it's also the arts. because that's what keeps their creative mind functioning. and it's these institutions with their wonderful service and their continuing exhibitions, world renown exhibitions that introduce and keep their minds active and keeps the tremendous amounts of visitors coming to our city. i know how difficult it has been for board and for the president to make quick search, to matchup the right person with such an incredible institution as these are. i for one, know how difficult it is and when you are trying to do that when you are running government, i want to also say to the staff that i enjoyed mr. buchannon's leadershipa as much as you do, to fill those shoes with mr. bailey i'm excited because i trust the board of trustees, the time you took to select him, i'm going to welcome mr. bailey and look forward to and excite
in the past when we didn't have so much that technology we were still able to add 5 hundred cabs at once i urge you to add 5 to 6 hundred madalinas at once and give the madalinas to the first applicant on the list for $50,000 each. the reason i say that is the sidecar they say their will be no drivers. it's going to be one cab, one shift please. whatever you decide set one price for all 5 to 6 hundred madalinas. those madalinas and the list will be for the drivers who deserve better deals and price. thank you. so far in general of the report is good but i wasn't part of that study i was left out by them and you, too directors. tell me otherwise to owners i just requested. anyone else? >> i see one more coming forward. >> i'd like to ask the members of this board would you take a ride from one of those shadow cab drivers if the driver was an ax murderer. people could be robbed or killed and this board would be responsible and this board could be potentially sued. you don't want to run that legal risk. the second thing is i have such great difficulty keeping with the legal and economical i
't even use the richter scale anymore. we use a moment magnitude. the richter scale was early technology. >> probably a myth that i hear most often is my building is just fine in the loma prieta earthquake so everything is fine. is that true ? >> loma prieta was different. the ground acceleration here was quite moderate and the duration was moderate. so anyone that believes they survived a big earthquake and their building has been tested is sadly mistaken. >> we are planning for the bigger earthquake closer to san francisco and a fault totally independent. >> much stronger than the loma prieta earthquake. >> so people who were here in '89 they should say 3 times as strong and twice as long and that will give them more of an occasion of the earthquake we would have. 10 percent isn't really the threshold of damage. when you triple it you cross that line. it's much more damage in earthquake. >> i want to thank you, harvey, thanks pat for >> hello. you're watching the show that explores san francisco's love affair with food. there are at least 18 farmers markets in san francisco alone, prov
't just the fire department alone. it took a lot of work from the department of technology to the department of city planning, i saw brian strong here early and ken rich from the mayor's office. a whole host of people, and we have john green who is our department captain, who earlier this morning gave a very special blessing upstairs in the dining facility to all the members at station 1 and for blessing this building and all the work done here. few other folks that i would like to acknowledge, local 798, the men and women presented by tom o'connor behind me, thank you, tom. as well as some of his members of the executive board here, thanks very much to local 798. there is two retired deputies here. i have seen this happen. i'm grateful they came back because it's this early phase, he got us where we are at today. thank you very much. [ applause ] and also retired deputy chief of operation patrick guard who was a member of station one 1 gaevend us -- gave us a lot of input. most of my command staff is behind me. just like when you go out and run a call you count on each ot
of technology says that early education baits boosts the economy by providing jobs to nearly 3 million people nationwide. ~ those people then spend their wages and pay taxes. by increasing the time, income, and resources for parents and caregivers of young children, we are building a solid foundation for lifelong development. children who attend early education programs have the benefit of relating to other students which can increase their social skills. children who have experience early childhood education are more socially competent in their preschool, kindergarten and school age years. in san francisco we still need over 15,000 slots for infants and preschool combined. there are approximately 36,785 children under the age of 13 and families with income levels eligible for child care subsidies. though children represent 42% of the city's child population. the need is great and it's unfulfilled right now. teachers and caregivers who provide our children with lifelong skills are invaluable to our society and we need to value and recognize their tremendous worth. today there are over 2000 ea
very hard with the police department, the fire department, mta, department of technology and others to bring our communications systems up to the 21st century. i think there's been some -- not i think, i know there's been a lot of confusion about what i believe president chiu referred to as the multiple radio projects. and i want to -- i hope i can dispel those misconceptions today. i'm going to try to keep it very simple because this is really complex issues. and i have my technical people here with me so that if, in fact, i can't answer a question, they certainly can for you. so, we are, you know, from our perspective, we are not duplicating efforts. we have separate projects that are occurring that are all very necessary. the four that i'm going to talk about today, and i see that it looks like ed rifkin who has been here since 1:30, had to leave for another meeting. so, it's unfortunate. but henry is here from mta if we have mta questions. so, the four that i want to summarize today are the public safety radio replacement, that's the 800 megahertz system, the bay web project, th
siloized perspectives. but i think until we actually take a step back and think about where technologies are going, it's going to be difficult for us to answer that question. and i don't have an expectation or i think could fairly ask any of you individually to do that task for the entire city. but if we don't do that, we're going to be spending $270 million over the next five years and i just want to make sure that that money is going to be put to good use. so, with that, colleagues, i appreciate your indulgence with this hearing and i look forward to future conversation about radios. >> thank you. colleagues, if there are no other questions, let's continue this to the call of the chair. without objection. thank you. [gavel] >> mr. young, is there any other business before us? >> that is the end itv this afternoon. >> great. thank you, everyone. meeting adjourned. [gavel]
